    Default Offset Distance

    Using ACAD 2010, I am offsetting a closed pline triangle.
    I enter 1/8" and it offsets .1342
    I enter 1" and it offsets 1.0002

    I draw a line and offet it 1" and it offsets 1"

    Why?

    Hi,

    ACAD is usually independent of the units ( " or mm etc.). There could be good possibility that by typing ( " ) with the number, you might be confusing the program. The another good explanation: using a faulty template. Try changing the template and avoid using ( " ). I did mine using a 1 offset, it comes to perfect zero upto any decimal number you name it.

    I hope that helps

    Let me guess, you measured the distance using osnaps midpoint to midpoint of the parallel sides.
    Should be midpoint(or nearest/endpoint) to perpendicular. The latter makes sure we are measuring the perpendicular distance.
